Hey, i’ve been at Hess for around 4 months now and I love it however as summer is coming up my school wants me to attend a 6 hour training session for Summer Camp next week of which I will be paid around 290 per hour (1700 for the whole day) instead of my usual 690 per hour.
They told me if I don’t do it then for the 6 weeks of summer camp I won’t be able to teach for the 6 weeks yet in my contract it says I am guaranteed 20 hours of teaching per week. But they refuse to pay me my standard salary as it’s ‘Not teaching, it’s training.’
I’m really worried that if I say no and continue arguing then the school will fire me and due to the pandemic this would be awful for many reasons. The training session won’t be at the school I work at but a different one.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
